Certo che me ne farai.
Certo che ce ne faremo.
Ma questa è la condizione stessa dell’esistenza. Farsi primavera, significa accettare il rischio dell’inverno.
Farsi presenza, significa accettare il rischio dell’assenza.
"I love you too, by the way"

1k, Belle and Adam One-Shot, ff.net
A one-shot of the scene (and conversation) that must have occurred between the kiss and the reunion with the servants. Set after the 2017 film, but it really applies to the original also.

High fantasy is the YA trend now, ya? So why is there so little LGBT+ high fantasy – stuff that’s popular, stuff you can talk to people about, stuff you can check out from your library? I’m not talking about books where the main character has a gay sidekick. I want fantasy (high, low, urban, myth, historical, whatever) where the main character is gay. Or bi. Or pan. Or trans. I want to see same-sex love stories. I want to see diverse characters. I want poly stories. 

I just… I’m so frustrated that an overwhelming amount of LGBT+ fiction is about the real world. It’s nice but I want to get away from that when I read; I want worlds that aren’t my own. I want gods and monsters and magic in my LGBT+ fiction. Those are my interests and this is my sexuality – why can’t I have both?

Why is that too much to ask?

TELL ME RIGHT NOW THAT LAURENT DIDNT PRETEND THAT THE PALACE HOUNDS WERE HIS HORSES BEFORE AUGUSTE GOT HIM HIS FIRST MARE. TELL ME HE DIDNT RIDE THEM AROUND THE PALACE PRETENDING HE WAS A KNIGHT SLAYING FANTASTICAL BEASTS AND PIRATES. TELL ME LAURENT DIDNT HAVE THE WILDEST IMAGINATION. THAT HE DIDNT CAUSE MISCHIEF AROUND THE PALACE.

Lynda Carter will give 'Wonder Woman' sequel a spin if it's 'a decent part'
Carter, who portrayed Diana Prince in the 1970s television series said there's hope that she might be in a sequel.

“I went with my family — my grown children and my husband — to the premiere, and my heart was pounding. And I was taken up because the essence of who that character is for so many of us, and for so long: there’s a goodness; there’s a heart. It’s about something. It’s about who we are as people against the violence. It’s about defending what’s right.”

 30 Days of BatB

Day One - Morning (AO3

The first thing Adam felt was a sharp pain against his skull. The light filtering in through the barely opened curtains was doing nothing to appease the pounding headache that currently plagued the prince.

“I told Lumiere to close those last night” he muttered to himself.

part two of my magical royal bangtan au!!! thanks to everyone who said they wanted to read more of it,,,,,,im blessed!!!!! (here) is part one, id suggest reading it first so you get the jist of the story !!~~~

  • so you’re the oracle who is going to foretell if there will be a war between your kingdom and it’s rival kingdom 
  • and wizard yoongi drops you off (well,,,,,,,i mean he gets paid for finding you so you could consider it as you being delivered but like,,,,,let’s just not get into that ,,,,,,,) to the three princes: jin, jimin, and jungkook
  • and they’re like you have to marry one of us because the act of marriage will help you see the future and what we should do in order to beat the rival kingdom 
  • and it’s like you have to do it for the sake of your kingdom and country but you turn to yoongi and you’re like “i don’t really wan-” but he’s like “you gotta.” 
  • and so on your first day,,,,,,,,,,in the palace,,,,,,,,you’re surprised when servants are at your bedside when you wake up and people are giving you these garments to wear that look like they could pay for your parents taxes for the next 4 years???? and your breakfast options are literally a whole table of imported coffee, truffles, fruits, you name it??????
  • and it’s all too much to handle and prince jimin is kind enough to try and shoo off some of the staff because all these people and all these questions is visibly making you uncomfortable
  • and the prince is like “i know it’s hard,,,,,,,,but,,,,,,,,,,,please,,,,,,,” and you’re like “i don’t understand whats going on? i don’t even know IF im the oracle!!! why can’t you three just discuss peace options with the other kingdom”
  • and jimin is like “we wish we could, but ever since,,,,,,,,,,,an incident in our past,,,,,,,,,”
  • and you’re like ?????? and jimin sighs and looks around and is like “come with me, you can’t tell prince jin i told you about this or else he’ll nag my ear off!”
  • and so you follow prince jimin into the library and up a spiral staircase until you’re down some dusty aisle of expensive looking leather-bound books
  • and jimin is like “last year, we were drafting up a peace treaty with the other kingdom. the three sons of that kingdom, namjoon, taehyung and hoseok, had always been in competition with us because,,,,,,,well we’re princes it’s our job to try and up-one each other for the sake of our countries glory,,,,,but finally our parents wanted to put that behind us. unfortunately,,,,,,,,,,”
  • jimin trails off but you’re like “unfortunately????” and jimin sighs and he’s like “unfortunately,,,,,the conference was disrupted by some kind of ambush attack. we believe it was a wizard, but we aren’t sure. they flew in on their broom and had went straight for the other kingdom’s king with a sword, but prince taehyung had blocked it and well,,,,,,,,,,,,he managed to protect his father but,,,,,,,,,,got scarred in the struggle. the scar runs across his left eye and well after that,,,,,,,,the brothers blamed up on hiring the wizard even though we didn’t and now we expect that??? they’re going to wage a war-”
  • jimin doesn’t get to finish because you both hear the huge door open and jin’s voice call out from the floor below
  • jimin pulls you alongside him and is like “oh, we were just talking brother!!! i was showing them all the books you and father have collected - we’ll come down!!!!”
  • but the whole time you’re walking with them back to the dining hall you can’t help but think about those other three brothers,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,taehyung?,,,,,,,,,,hoseok,,,,,,,,,,and namjoon,,,,,,,,,

–> Namjoon

  • is the only brother who doesn’t actually bare a grudge against the other kingdom. he’s way more interested in putting effort into bettering his own country 
  • enjoys political discussions with older officials and meets up with professors at the local universities and famous writers and always has a notebook to jot notes down
  • wears glasses when he isn’t at formal events and all the servants think he looks really cute in them but no one dares to tell him because his resting face is really serious and they aren’t sure how to read his emotions
  • tripped over a billion dollar ancient statue once
  • you see him at the first ever meeting the two kingdoms hold because even if there might be a war there is things like trading and country barriers that have to be discussed and namjoon, being the most level-headed of the three is always sent to talk to jin
  • and you’re not supposed to be eavesdropping on their conversation but you really REALLY wanna see this brother from the other kingdom to learn more about them
  • but the problem is namjoon gets up halfway through the mediation and ends up walking down the halls to the bathroom and you’re like ok ok hide,,,,,,but you make a bunch of noise and namjoon stops in his tracks and you’re like shIT from where you’re standing behind the plant
  • and you think it’s ok,,,,,he won’t find me
  • but then you hear a deep voice go “hey” and you’re like OH GOD
  • and you get so scared you turn to fast and knock the whole plant over and you’re like scurrying to try and get it back up but there’s dirt everywhere and namjoon is watching you and is like “,,,,,,,um are you? a servant?”
  • but then he sees what you’re wearing and he’s like “wait,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,are you the oracle?” 
  • and you stand up straight and put your hands up and you’re like nO NO NO 
  • but it’s obvious he doesn’t believe you and he’s like “is it true? you can predict the future?” and you’re like nO I CANT I DONT KNOW UH
  • and namjoon looks so fascinated and he’s like “i need to know more,,,,,”
  • and you’re like “i ????? don’t know?????? isn’t jin - prince jin - waiting for you????”
  • and namjoon is like right right,,,,,,,,,,
  • and you think that’s the last you’ll see of him but you overhear at the dinner table that namjoon is staying in the palace since jin still needs to speak with him for some more time and jungkook makes a face but jin is like bEHAVE
  • and the worse, more curious part of you decides to see if it’s true - if he’s really staying here
  • and it is. you find him exactly where you expect,,,,,,,,,in the astronomy tower that’s barely ever visited and you want to just walk away but you ,,,,, can’t for some reason
  • and you’re like “um - hi we met before-” and namjoon basically runs down the steps to you and he’s like “the oracle!!!!!!! amazing, i knew wizards and magical beings still existed but -”
  • and he touches your wrist and lifts it up to examine it and you’re like erm what are you doing
  • and he’s like sorry, ive never met someone whose blood is laced with magic and you’re like ??????/
  • but you think he’s,,,,,,,,,,interesting and he doesn’t seem at all interested in the war like everyone else and you talk get to talking and you tell namjoon of your dreams and prophecies
  • and he’s like amazed by you
  • and namjoon ends up staying for a week and a half him and jin have to go over so much and every night you met in the tower and talk
  • and when he has to go,,,,,,,,,you ask if you’ll see him again and he’s like i don’t think i can come back here for a while,,,,,,,,,but when the wedding happens -
  • and you look down because,,,,,,,you don’t want the wedding to happen
  • and namjoon can see this clearly on your face
  • which immediately makes his heart turn and suddenly he’s getting marching back inside to where jin and the others are and he’s like “you know, you don’t need the oracle to be married to let them have their vision.” 
  • and jin is like “what? how do you know-” and namjoon puts a hand around you and you’re like !!!!!!! and the other three are like “GUAR-”
  • but namjoon is like “you’re saying the ‘power’ of marriage is enough but there is no power in marriage. maybe,,,,,maybe a kiss will be enough,,,,,”
  • and everyone is shocked and namjoon turns to you and he’s like “it’s science, romantic physically gestures,,,,,,,,,increase endorphin’s,,,,,,,so,,,,,,,”
  • and you, who totally doesn’t wanna get married, reaches up to hold his face and bring your lips to his,,,,,,,,,and it’s like an electricity runs through you
  • and you can see the vision, the vision of peace - the vision of jin and namjoon laughing alongside each other and you excitedly pull back and exclaim there won’t be any war!!!!1
  • while namjoon needs to adjust his glasses and still his heart because WOAH you’re a good kisser

–> Taehyung

  • is the most apprehensive about your kingdom because of what happened to his eye,,,,,,,,,for a while he covered it up with a patch but recently he’s taken to not wearing it just because hoseok has convinced him it doesn’t make him look bad,,,,,,,,,,it makes him look really strong
  • and everyone in his country respects him for taking care of the king so well
  • and taehyung,,,,,,,,,,,,,,has another reason for his animosity and it’s because magic,,,,,in the modern world has been looked down apart. a wizard is even the one who is said to have been the one attack his father that day,,,,,,,but taehyung,,,,has magic in his blood
  • he isn’t sure what to trace it back to,,,,,but he can speak with animals. he’s been able to do it since he was a child and was first taught to horseback ride,,,,he could literally speak to his horse and everyone thought he just had a gift for the sport, but no,,,,,,he just knew what the horse was thinking and could tell it what he wanted
  • and you meet taehyung through animals because as you’re sitting in room you hear something tapping at the window and once you open it a dove flies in
  • and in its beak is what looks like a letter and when you open it,,,,,,,,,,still shellshocked that you got ,,,,,,,this letter by literal carrier dove
  • you see the words ‘are you the oracle?’ and you’re like ???? w- what is this
  • and you think about showing it to the princes, so they know someone else knows you’re here. but then you think,,,,,what if this is someone seeking help,,,,,,,,,or maybe someone seeking to help you 
  • because you really don’t want to get married, you’re still young!
  • so you take the risk and write back ‘yes. who is asking’ and giving it back to the bird who takes off back to the skies
  • and the next day in the afternoon, she’s back with a new letter and this one says ‘im from the other kingdom. are they using you to see if there will be a war? they don’t have to do that. there will be war for what they did to us.’
  • and you suddenly get a feeling in the pit of your stomach that maybe you shouldn’t have replied to the letter so you just crumple this one up and throw it away
  • but the two days pass and another letter comes and it goes ‘i don’t know if you know the story, oracle. but i was scarred in your countries meek attack on my father. i cannot let my people down and not wage a war, do you understand?’
  • and you remember ,,,,, the scar,,,,,,this must be taehyung and you know you can’t ignore this letter so you write back: ‘i know the story, i know of what happened to you taehyung but the attack on your father was not planned. war won’t be good for either country, it was the work of a wizard.’
  • the letter you get back: ‘and so what, a wizard could be used by your country! they’re using you, an oracle to foretell the future, they could hire another magic being to kill my father!’
  • you can see the handwriting is bigger and more messy, you can see there’s anger in it and you look at the dove as it sits on your balcony waiting for you to reply and you can only write back ‘they’re using my vision to see if there is a war,,,,,and what they will be able to do to stop it. they want nothing to protect our people, they don’t want a war so they wouldn’t have had reason to kill your father. you understand, don’t you - what the consequence on your people will be?’
  • you don’t get a reply for a week and it’s nearing the time of the wedding
  • but suddenly instead of the dove, you get an eagle and the message says ‘come to the outskirts of the stables’ and you’re confused, but you go and you see a hooded figure standing right behind one of the bushes and when the hood comes off you see ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, the most handsome boy
  • with beautiful glowing skin, a lean figure and then,,,,,,,,,,the scar,,,,,,
  • and you gasp because taEHYUNG???? prince TAEHYUNG??? and he’s like “shhhhh, ive come here,,,,,,,to ask you something.”
  • and you’re like what???? you know if the princes find you you’ll be arres-
  • and he’s like shaking his head and he’s like “is it true, you’re an oracle. is it true they didn’t plan the attack on my father.”
  • and you swallow and stand up a bit straighter and you’re like 
  • “i,,,,,,,,,would be willing to bet my life. and im sure that the vision i have when im married,,,,,,,,it will proclaim peace. there is no need for this war.”
  • and taehyung looks at you, the stern serious brown in his eyes suddenly turning slightly softer and he reaches out to touch your hand and you’re like ?
  • and he’s like “excuse me, i just never thought the oracle would turn out to be,,,,,,,,,,this ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,beautiful”
  • and you’re like aHH,,,,,,,but he’s suddenly like “i need to go, now. my horse says someone is coming near. ill,,,,,,,write to you”
  • and you wave him off but as you’re going back inside you’re like wait,,,,,his horse??????Spoke to him
  • and you and taehyung exchange letters until finally on the day before the wedding he shows up and prince jungkook nearly dashes at him, saber out
  • but taehyung is like “im here to deliver official news” and jin is like usually namjoon is sent and taehyung is like “on behalf of my country - i want us to sign a peace treaty. there will be no war.”
  • and everyone is shocked because what,,,,,,,,,,,why the sudden change of heart and taehyung flicks his gaze to where you’re standing back near the palace doors and he’s like “i,,,,,have reflected and see no point in war. i want to protect my people.”
  • and the treaty is signed and it’s celebrated by each country but taehyung suddenly asks jin that,,,,,,,,if it’s possible he’d like to see the oracle and jin is like well,,,,,,,we don’t need the prophecy anymore so it should be safe
  • and taehyung walks over to you and asks if you’ll dance with him to celebrate the treaty
  • and you agree and jimin is like leaning over to jin and he’s like “i can’t believe prince taehyung seduced them in that one minute and we couldn’t do it in a whole 30 days,,,,,,,”

–> Hoseok

  • looks like he follows the rules and listens to the rules of his country and to his other brothers, but in reality there’s something a little,,,,,,mischievous about him
  • is the most social of the brothers when it comes to the people of his country and he enjoys going around without guards in the town and buying from local farmers and talking to school teachers and playing with the kids in the street
  • and is not really sure where he stands on the whole war thing,,,,,,,,,but what he does know is that he’s incredibly interested in the people of other kingdoms,,,,,how do they live? what does their food taste like? what kind of holidays do they have?
  • which is why he travels over to your kingdom one time,,,,,,,,,and he isn’t even sure of all of this oracle business or the war he just wants to see your country for himself
  • and you,,,,,,well you’re a rebellious oracle. you don’t wanna sit in that palace all day with the princes you don’t much want to marry
  • you want to go back, you want to see your family at least see how they’re doing and if they’re worried for you
  • and that’s why one morning you pack yourself some bread and slip out of the garden unnoticed by the maids who you’d distracted with something
  • and you run down the forest path that leads to the town and you’re so happy
  • to be on the streets you are familiar with, see people you know
  • even though you have to hide under a veil you’ve prepared so no one knows who you are and doesn’t report you back to the princes
  • and you’re navigating your way to your parents produce shop when you bump into someone and all the things in their basket go flying
  • and you’re like “oh my gosh im so ,,,, sorry”
  • and you try to pick up a mango that’s rolling away and the person lets out this sunny, melodic chuckle
  • and you look up and ,,,,,,,,,,,, wow,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,there is sunbeams and everything soft embodied in a person and you almost drop that damn mango
  • and he’s like “no problem!! by the way, do you know where i can find this street?”
  • and he shows you a map and you’re like oh,,,,of course-
  • and you give him directions and he gives you another smile that almost makes you tip over because WOW how can someone look like that
  • and you have to part ways but you’re like,,,,,he’s the most wonderful,,,,,,traveler you’ve ever seen
  • and you get back to the palace and are in for an earful from everyone until they’re distracted with incoming news and you see jin open up the paper and 
  • the front page,,,,,,,,,it’s a picture of the traveler you saw???? the super handsome but jin frowns and he’s like “prince hoseok,,,,,,was last seen in our town? they might have sent him as a spy we should do something.”
  • and you’re like wait what and you look at the photo and you’re 100% sure that that’s who you saw,,,,,,,
  • and that night as you’re sleeping you wake up from another dream but,,,,it’s a bad one,,,,,,,,,,,,,really bad and it involves prince hoseok being hurt by one of the villagers,,,,,literally you see him get bludgeoned
  • and you get up and run down the halls to jin’s room and ask his servants to wake him up
  • and when you explain your vision jin kind of goes “that’s,,,,,i can’t allow that to happen. even if he is our rival, send out a search team.”
  • and the entire night is lighted up with the lights from the search team as they look through the town to find the prince
  • and they do,,,,but it’s too late, he’s already been hurt but he’s rushed to the palace to get medical treatment by the in-house doctor
  • and when you hear whats happened you run to go see if prince hoseok is ok
  • and somehow,,,,,,something pulls you toward him and you don’t leave his side the entire night
  • and when he wakes up, still groggy you fill him in and he’s like “you—-you saw a vision? are you the oracle?” and you nod slowly and he’s like “but,,,,,,i saw you in town?” and you’re like “i escaped for a bit, i do that. but seriously, are you ok?”
  • and hoseok smiles and you’re like ???? and he’s like “you’re like me, you can’t sit still.”
  • and you don’t know what to say,,blushing a bit and looking down and you’re like “um,,,,,,,,,” because like ,,,,,,, wow he’s so beautiful even with a bruised lip and a huge bandaged on his head,,,,,,,you can’t help but get embarrassed in front of him
  • and jin comes by and asks if hoseok is spying on their kingdom and hoseok just laughs and is like “no, i was just here to sample the culture” and jin doesn’t believe him but you’re like trying to convince him that hoseok is innocent and jin is like “why are you so,,,,,,,,,,,,,,nice to him?” and you’re like “im an oracle, i have magic in me and my magic is telling me he wasn’t spying.”
  • and jin doesn’t know what to do but he calls for the other two princes to come and pick up their brother
  • and when they do, taehyung and namjoon thank jin for returning their brother safely
  • but you’re sad to see hoseok go,,,,,and you know you have to be married in a couple of days,,,,,,,,but,,,,,,,,,,,
  • until suddenly something begins to hurt in your head and you drop to your knees and jimin rushes to you
  • and you can see it before your eyes,,,,,,,,,that the two kingdoms are at peace,,,,,,,,and you go “the vision,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the prophecy,,,,,,it came to me”
  • and jin is like “without the power of marriage??????” and you look up and hoseok, whose pushed back his brothers to come and lean in front of you and touch your cheek to see if you’re ok
  • and you’re like “,,,,,,,,,yes without marriage,,,,,,,it’s just the power of,,,,,,,,,,,,,,” and you’re looking at hoseok
  • whose looking back at you and you’re like, under your breath “love,,,,,,at first sight?”
  • and jin is like what did you see and you’re like “peace. i saw peace.”
  • and the two set of brothers look at each other and back at you and jimin wants to help you up, but hoseok is already supporting you and when he gets you up you see how you’re pressed into his arms
  • and suddenly you’re getting something else, a vision of a wedding off in the future,,,,,,,,,
  • but the groom waiting at the alter,,,,,,,,,he turns around and,,,,,,
  • it’s that smile. hoseok’s warm, radiating smile and you look back at him as he’s holding you and he’s like “did you see something?”
  • and you’re like “how did you know?”
  • and hoseok, taking your hand to put it over his heart goes “im no oracle, but you’re making me feel something,,,,,,,,,,,,maybe the same thing you saw in your vision?”
